Sea Shanty is the third in a series of (I think) four Pride-themed quilts I'm planning to execute. It won't be as brassy or bold as its cousins, Queer as Fuck and This Heart Fights The Good Fight, but it's for another friend who finds comfort and meaning in the idea of owning a Pride-themed quilt.

This quilt was born out of twin desires: to work with the not-quite-solids that are shot cottons, and to create a quilt that echoed Robert and Aidan's wedding colors.
